Cold cereal's good for a no-cook dinner, too. 8)
In Japan, the word "snack" means an expensive bar where "hostesses" entertain you(-er...men, usually!).
Heck yeah! You never heard of the good old breakfast for dinner tradition? :roll: :wink:
Besides, you can't beat cereal. Almost everybody keeps some in the cupboard, right? You can eat it with or without milk. It's relatively low in calories and usually low in fat. Depending on what kind you eat, it could be whole grain -- high in fiber -- and enriched -- a good source of vitamins and minerals. It takes two seconds to prepare. Just one dish and maybe a spoon. Cereal rocks! :rocker: :lol:
I'll bite for the cereal thing. But it terms of healthy it depends what kind as some are very high in sugar.
Yikes! So when you get in the cab and ask the driver to take you somewhere for a snack, you're getting a little more than you bargained for!!!
True. Ya gotta read the labels. 8) And stay away from granola, if you're looking for low-calorie/low-fat. 8)
whenever i buy cereal, i check for calorie (per cup - some list in 1/2 cup!) and fiber content
Check for grams of sugar, too. Some "sugary"cereals really aren't all the bad, IMO. And some "healthy" cereals have lots of hidden sugar.
And you can't go wrong with good old cheerios. 8) Supposedly (according to the advertising on the package) they "may help lower cholesterol" levels, as well. 8)
it's like checking for sodium content why buying chips :? ...
Just the other day I was searching for cereal (we have very limited variety in vancouver....). The best ones i could find (high fiber/low sugar) are almost all organic. I wonder if there's a correlation between people who produce organic food just want an overall healthy alternative.
Good point. Let's hear it for fruit loops! Lots of sugar, artifical food colors, and preservatives. Yum. :lol:
I don't usually eat cereal but on occasion I like the grainy Muesli (sp?) available at the import stores here. There are dozens of varieties with dried fruit and nuts, and have very little added sugars. Great fer snackin'!
Absolutely, since most cabbies don't speak English. Also, a lot of those places are owned by gangsters. You sit down, have one drink and they charge you $200. Steer clear of those snacks.
whoa...better stick to homemade snack!
For sure! Japan is a fairly safe country and people aren't out there to blatanly rip you off like they do some places, but you have to be careful of the nightclubs and "snacks". This is common sense if you are a solo male traveler.
i've heard it's even worse in China. If you are a single male traveller, you get unsolicited entertainment at night in your hotel room :shock: !
I'll keep that in mind. You like the homemade variety. :wink: :lol:
This is fun. The double entendres, the play, now that we know what snack means in Japan. :lol:
Italian sausage with mustard, green peppers and onions.
You're absolutely right!
